Our Team

At VWK we believe community is essential. When you take a puppy home, board your dog with us or take part in our training program, you become part of the VWK family. When you are a part of that family, you can expect:

  • Exceptional care, dedication and lifetime support
  • Open communication about your dog and their needs
  • A staff that will treat you like family


Kate became the owner of VWK in 2017 after being a longtime client. Her goal is to maintain and improve the breeding program while expanding the boarding and training services offered. She takes home as many of the retired adults as she can and believes dogs should sleep on the bed and have cupcakes on their birthdays. She is certified in Infectious Disease Management to keep every dog as healthy as possible.


Bryan is the GM and Boarding Manager of VWK. Besides ensuring we are always providing the best services we can, Bryan manages, designs and builds most of our improvements. He believes everything should be done with the health, comfort and happiness of the dogs in mind. At home, he is a dad to two beautiful girls, an avid gardener and cook. He is certified in Infectious Disease Management and is a Certified Pet CPR & First Aid instructor to keep every dog as safe and healthy as possible.


Frank is a member of our training team. He particularly enjoys helping people establish a sound foundation with their young puppies and building a lifelong love of training. In addition to our obedience classes, Frank runs our Agility and Rally classes. He enjoys working with all breeds and believes training should be fun.


Arianna quickly became an integral part of VWK. She treats our dogs like her own and intends to take several of them home when they retire. Arianna socializes and cares for our puppies, is there when most of them are born and helps interview potential clients and match them to their perfect puppy. In her spare time, she works with her pup Temper, who she held the moment he was born.


Annika joined VWK as a member of our boarding team. Her primary responsibility is to walk and play with our boarding dogs. She ensures they have fun and appropriate activities while staying with us. From a tiny Yorkie, to a huge Bernese, to a highly trained Malinois, Annika cares about every dog she interacts with.
